North American Alliance for Fair Employment (NAFFE)

The North American Alliance for Fair Employment (NAFFE) is a network of organizations concerned about the growth of contingent work—including part-time jobs, temping, sub-contracting—and its impact on the well being of all workers.
Here is an organization working to do a variety of actions to work with workers in tenuous working situations. From the more obvious to the very difficult ones of sub-contractors - these are probably one of the worst. The worst case we have heard was a cleaning sub-contractor that sub-contracted the work down but it ended down four levels of sub-contractors [each taking a cut of the action], ultimately the house of cards collapsed, but it had lasted for years!

There is a direct Toronto working group that will be further covered in another posting.
